Blanca

Perfect For: Special Occasions Unique Dining Experience

If you’ve lived in NYC for more than two weeks, you already know Roberta’s. Famous as that place might be, they have a secret that a lot of people still don’t know about. That secret is called Blanca, and it’s a 12-seat prix-fixe ($195, before tip/tax/alcohol) restaurant that’s in its own separate room on the Roberta’s property, removed from the main restaurant. There’s no pizza on the menu - in fact, you won’t even see a menu. Your courses just start arriving one after the other - on our last visit, we had 16 dishes ranging from caviar with pinenuts to uni cavatappi to beef with persimmon, and all of them were outstanding. You sit in plush leather barstools as you watch at least four chefs prepare your food (one of whom selects the playlist in real-time, as he “reads the crowd”), and you’ll probably drink with the sommelier after she convinces you to do the wine pairing. If you’re looking to throw down for a very special occasion meal, you can’t do much better than Blanca.
